However the tribal law forbade them from marriage, when the three brothers attempted to capture the young women to wed, a Katoomba tribe witchdoctor turned the three sisters into stones to protect them. Unfortunately the witchdoctor was killed in the battle and hence unable to reverse the spell. Today the majestic Three Sisters are world-class spectacles which attract millions to adore their beauty.
